Not Good News From My Doctor

Tuesday, March 02, 2021

So I got the results back from my lab work yesterday. My doctor says that my cholesterol is high. She is starting me on a cholesterol pill, but I am most likely going to have to work on my diet and lose weight. This was definitely not the news I was wanting, but with my family history and my dietary habits it is not surprising.

My feet and ankles are swelling again and she said I have to sit with my feet elevated all the time when sitting. It has not swelled in over 3 years, now it is back.

It is hard not to feel depressed when you get news like that. Especially knowing that my mom had to have a quadruple bypass when she was alive, and died drowning in her own lung fluids.

I definitely could use all the support I can get at this moment.
